Fridays With Franklin



“Beware of little expenses, a small leak will sink a great ship.”

Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanack

I like to think of Benjamin Franklin as the equivalent to a personal finance blogger of today. He had humble beginnings, but through thrift, hard work, and quite a few great ideas, he did very well for himself. His Poor Richard’s Almanack was enormously popular. Every Friday this year I’ll be visiting one of the hundreds of aphorisms he coined for the Almanack. Human nature hasn’t changed, and no doubt frugal wisdom from the 18th century is still valid today.

What leaks are you trying to plug this week?
